In all honesty, maybe I'm too old. My opinions on browsers were mostly formed when Opera was only available in a paid version. At the time that the free version was made available, I was quite happy with FireFox and it's plugins, and IE prior to that. Even though I forced myself to use it exclusively for a week, I've probably never given it a fair shake.

For me it used to be Firefox, exclusively. Tried Chrome on my Vista installation for the sake of experimentation, but there are a few things I don't like about it: Not too comfortable controls (no 'X' button? Arggg....), too few options in 'Options', fewer add-ons, growing general mistrust for Google (heard tales about it sending too much data about me to it's creators)....
I feel I agree with Admin about FF getting buggier with time. Using Chrome at the moment since FF is giving me grief (pages taking forever to load). BTW, if you wanna block adds with Chrome, why not use Privoxy? Worked for me. I think it can also be used with IE.
A couple of browsers with which I didn't get along:
Opera - just didn't like it. To be fair - didn't give it a second chance after first annoying bug (problem with importing bookmarks)
SRWare Iron - All the downs of Chrome, plus it started hanging on some pages pretty quickly.
Safari - was installed on my computer for a whole minute! Then it started using 100% of my CPU.... plus, I didn't like its friends....

IE8 is a great improvement, so I agree with everyone on that. IE8 starts just as fast as Firefox...3-5 seconds.
I am glad for how good Firefox has come along! And Internet Explorer.

I also have the portable version of FF for my flash drive so I can use it at work and take my favorites and add-ons with me. I have used Opera (portable version) as well, but not enough to intelligently comment on how it is. I actually have Opera-Tor on my flash drive as well for those client machines where the security is questionable.
Never really got into Chrome or Safari. As a geek, I am also ashamed to say that I have not yet given IE8 a try. Perhaps in the next week or so on the new Windows 7 beta VM that I am creating.
